I know I should save the best for last, but it’s all relative because who can choose between 5 new fall infused recipes! In preparation for Fall Cookie Week, I send dozens of cookies to friends, family and neighbors to see which new cookies make the cut. Everyone had a differing opinion this year, but these Cinnamon Sugar Cookies are my personal favorite.

You just need a handful of pantry staple ingredients to make these festive cookies.

  • Butter, vegetable oil and sugar
  • Vanilla extract: Pure is preferable over imitation
  • Powdered sugar: Also known as confectioners’ sugar
  • Eggs: Fresh, free run / organic if you can
  • Flour, salt, cream of tartar, baking soda

The Most Delicious Sugar Cookie Recipes

Sometimes I have a recipe that I can’t for the life of me figure out why others aren’t making, and that’s my Melt in Your Mouth Sugar Cookies. These aren’t your Grandma’s Cinnamon Sugar Cookies and snickerdoodles don’t have anything on them! 

They’re soft, buttery and flat out irresistible. I dare you to just eat one.

Frosted Sugar Cookie Recipe

Although my sugar cookies are really good by themselves, I decided to give them a little cinnamon twist for fall. The cinnamon frosting is so perfectly creamy with just a hint of spice. They simply melt in your mouth and you will be dreaming about the lush buttercream!

How Long Do Cinnamon Sugar Cookies Last?

Once these cookies have been cooled and iced, they will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for about 3 to 4 days. Un-iced cookies can also be frozen on a baking sheet and then placed in zip lock bags and they will be good for a month or two. Bake a couple of batches, freeze half and enjoy later in the season!
